"The attorney general has privately contended that Horowitz does not have enough information to reach the conclusion the FBI had enough details in hand at the time to justify opening such a probe." washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
Oh boy, if this is true then we are in for a heck of a show with the Durham probe:

"He argues that other U.S. agencies, such as the CIA, may hold significant information that could alter Horowitz’s conclusion on that point..."
So again, assuming that the Washington Post is getting real information here, AG Barr and Durham have information that Horowitz does not have and disagree with Horowitz (alleged) conclusion that the probe into the Trump campaign was opened on solid legal grounds.
And apparently, Barr praised Horowitz overall work on the report. If this is true that would lead me to believe that all the people freaking out over the report being a dud or a nothingburger should cool their jets and wait to read it themselves.
It is standard practice for the DOJ to submit a written response to the OIG report, so AG Barr could make his disagreements known as part of that process. Or he could just make a public statement.
This article seems like it's a leak from the DOJ/Barr to counter all the leaking from the coup plotters like McCabe and Page. Stating that Horowitz did a good job overall but doesn't have enough facts for some of his conclusions really puts a damper on the fake news narratives.
The previous New York Times leak said that Horowitz would conclude that they had a legal justification for opening the probe but that it was a low bar to meet. It sounds like AG Barr disagrees that they even met that low standard. Buckle up!

Don't forget, President Trump ordered the intelligence communities to cooperate with AG Barr so he has more information than Horowitz does about the origins of Spygate.

And AG Barr isn't just flying off to Italy with John Durham because Horowitz found out that Mifsud wasn't an FBI informant. There's obviously more going on here.

So if the WAPO leaks are true, AG Barr is happy with the Horowitz report but disagrees on a key issue that AG Barr has more information on than Horowitz does. I can't freaking wait to see this report! Only a week left, and then who knows what's next with the Durham probe. /end
